Amounting trade to worth of $8.3 billion was 19.8 per cent bigger than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with Switzerland was $5.6 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Switzerland was 40.5 per cent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $7.0 billion. Major product categories of imports from Switzerland were Sitc897 (jewellery, goldsmiths' and silversmiths' wares, and other articles of precious or semiprecious materials, n.e.s.), representing 19.4 percent of imports, Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 18.8 % and Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind) 15.0 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Switzerland declined by 32.0 per cent compared to in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.3 billion in November 2021. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc971 (gold,non-monetary), which represented a share of 21.9 per cent of total exports, Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group) 10.2 % and Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 8.9 % of the exports.

Development during January-November 2021

The trade in goods between January and November of 2021 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $79.1 billion, down 8.3 %. During January-November the value of imports was $57.5 billion. The export value was $21.5 billion.
